Edge Academy like its name prepares the student for all the cutting edge exams in India and specializes in NDA, CDS, CBSE Std 11 and 12, ICSE Std 11 and 12, IIT JEE and many more courses. The academy is run by the vision and able guidance of its mentor along with certain principles which make this one the really established name in the preparation of defense exam preparation. Situated in Kota, Rajasthan this coaching institute is different from what Kota usually serves.
Let’s know about this more.
About the Founders
Founded by Col Pieush Agarwal, the institute as prolific and accomplished as the man himself. Col Agarwal is a celebrated Army man with a vision to plan, build and execute some mind blowing strategy. Col. Pieush Agarwal, alumni of RIMC(Rashtriya Indian Military College) & NDA is a thorough professional with varied and vast experience in the Indian Army at the top level in the field of HR. He has been a trainer at NSG, Manesar (Black Cat Commandos) and handled Special Security in a High- Risk Environment. He has been part of Kargil war in 1999 and has led several missions in J&K. But he is not the only one running this institute.
Along with him is Dr. Sapna Agarwal, senior behavioral expert, international trainer and parenting consultant. She has conducted various seminars on time management, team management, leadership, talent management, parenting and many such topics at national and the international level.
Why Edge Academy?
With the background of the founders so vivid and complete, it is needless to say that Edge Academy lack anything.
- Both the founders believe in imparting education a holistic manner.
- Learning here is not confined to the classrooms but to reality.
- Teaching concepts is not a difficult task, but building them is and here at Edge this task seems simple too.
- Along with theoretical knowledge, it is focused for students to learn the practical skills that they need to sail through in their exams and how one can develop them.
What makes Edge Academy Different?
Despite being in the hands of some great mentors and guides, Edge has established a name for itself which runs on performance and results, not to forget goodwill. Many students, who wish to appear for exams relating to defense jobs in India often lack proper guidance. It is not difficult to crack the written exam, but what comes next is the interview which often is the hard screw to drive. So obviously, there is no better place than Edge where an army man himself is at your service to make you clear these exams and the interview to get into the defense academy and prepare for a life full of challenges ahead.
Since Edge Academy focuses on all the exams pertaining to the defense sector, the following is a list of exams that it caters to along with them:
- JEE Mains
- Indian Cost Guard
- Air Force
- Indian Navy
- Certificate course in Personality Development
- Psychometric Test
The selection process has the following components.
(a) Psychological/Intelligence Test.
(b) Group Testing Officer’s (GTO’s) Test.
(c) Personal Interview.
Now we know that with specialization to clear all these exams has to come from some place which does not jut real time associated but enough to draw students towards it. Along with the written examination for these modules, the personality test is a challenge which again is a matter of grooming here.
At Edge, the focus is given on areas like interview skills, public speaking, self-confidence and knowledge building.
